CPU performance question (Urgent)

Postby Tazflyer » Fri Jul 10, 2020 3:02 am

To whom this may concern

Over the course of 3 weeks now i have been testing both P3D V4 and V5 with some of the minimal and recommended hardware which can be found on your website.

Through out the testing i have found slight stutters which happen every 3 -4 seconds apart when flying in a straight line, then a massive performance drop when turning left to right.

All of this testing is done with Vanilla P3D with no Addons

My question is - Would the stutters and lag be the cause of my i5 8500 locked at 3ghz?? If so would improving the GHZ to 3.7 change anything?

Cheers

Yes, and yes!

For v. 5, 3 GHz is the minimum required CPU clock rate. Anything more than that will help.
